This actually happened to a friend of mine, he was a little suss about the transaction and used paypal because he thought he was protected, turns out he wasn't due to virtual goods, credit card company also wouldnt do anything, he was going to take it to court until he realized the lawyer fees were going to be like triple the amount he was scammed (also around a thousand)
So he just ended up cutting his losses short and parting without the $1000 and using that as a lesson learnt, never give out money to a suss looking transaction! Even if you think your covered JUST.DON'T! now this grubby little sh*t has your money,and you're $1000 down..not a very good scenario.. Coudnt you tell by the emails he sent? He sounded like a kid so I wasn't surprised when someone said he actually was a kid! Jesus.

I remember seeing something similar on these forums a few weeks ago, where someone was releasing all rights for like, $200. Even so, I wouldn't have any rights at all.

okay first off why didnt you do anything about this before, and second off people have said you have been scaming people on game salad for ages, and it seems unrealistic that they hacked both your ta account and your itunes account, i may be wrong in all of this though

So are you or are you not on here every month (or so) selling rights to your games? How long/how many times have you been hacked?

Well just a quick search reveals his selling of rights to a number of apps as well as his "offers" for various services.

Lovely... he's back.

Lying again I see

BTW everyone I did get all my money back from paypal.

In regards to CC you should always be able to CANCEL payment on a
pending transaction. At least by US law.

anyhow I have been contacted by a number or other people that were being scammed in 1 way or another.

Some people were able to actually buy app templates from Mateen.

In some cases those have been other peoples sample code
with new art thrown on top. Not illegal but rather sleazy.

Amazing. I'd like to see this story made into a movie.

Possibly even a musical.

Maybe have it as as a parallel sub plot to a blockbuster hit about the infamous Edge trademark dispute.

If that came out it'd be more like Future Films Are Now Here!
